Truly Pathetic

Read more about Philip's latest editorial here in "Five Questions and a Pack of Lies."

There is something pathetic about someone who has such low self-esteem that he has to write himself fan mail. Consider the latest posting on Philip R. Klein's reader mail page (emphasis is mine):
I was in attendance at your talk to the Port Arthur Rotary Club where I have been a member for many years. You were entertaining and your message rings so true. I encourage other groups to have you come speak and hear the truth of what has happened to Southeast Texas. The more they scream the more guilty they look. Thanks again for speaking to us!"
There are so many of Klein's grammatical signatures in this purported question from a reader that I'm absolutely certain Philip wrote this himself. I'll comment on two of them.

Notice the awkward sentence structure with stacked prepositional phrases in Klein's opening:
...I was in attendance at your talk to the Port Arthur Rotary Club...
Most people would write something like this:
I saw you speak at the Port Arthur Rotary Club...
"Scream" is another of Klein's signatures. Here are a few examples:
Of course the teachers Union screams...
The Gang of Seven screams that they need to lock down the courthouse...
The Fire Department is screaming foul...
The guy was seen hanging out his window screaming he loved Beaumont...
You - the public of Jefferson County should be screaming right now...
He is BORING! You just want to scream WAAAAAKKEEEE UPPPPP!
We expect each of them to scream from the highest mountain...
Everyone but the media who should be screaming at the top of there lungs...
The waste and the misuse of tax dollars would make me scream...
It is kind of fun to see the cockroaches run and scream when you bring up history...
And we all scream GREAT!
It just makes us want to scream RHINO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Leading many in the democratic party screaming dirty tricks and infuriating the black communities.

Sometimes you just want to SCREAM! Seriously SCREAM!
Ace nut counter Patrick Swain screamed the county was in financial crisis!
Maybe the clinic kids can come out and give free flu shots for the citizens as they march around screaming...
So tax dollars will be spent to study whether or not to accept citizens funds for a project
Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh......(us screaming).
It makes us just want to scream Mayor.
There will be a scream like never heard before.
We would like to have a show on that station. Every morning at 7 a.m. and scream....GOOOD MORNINGGGGG PORT ARTHUR!
And the business community screams YES!
We had people calling - crying - screaming.
And we hear at the Review just want to throw up and scream.
They will scream and cry and call you names...
A true root Republican should be screaming from the highest point at the courthouse...
Sometimes we just want to scream.
The similarities in Philip R. Klein and Theodore Kaczynsk's writing styles are striking:
Throughout the manuscript,..Kaczynski capitalizes entire words in order to show emphasis. He always refers to himself as either "we" or "FC" (Freedom Club), though he appears to have acted alone. Donald Foster, who analyzed the writing at the request of Kaczynski's defense, notes that the manuscript contains instances of irregular spelling and hyphenation, as well as other consistent linguistic idiosyncrasies (which led him to conclude that it was indeed Kaczynski who wrote it).
For those familiar with the SET Political Review, this sounds eerily familiar. I would not be surprised to read in the Beaumont Enterprise one morning that Philip R. Klein crashed a black SUV into the Jefferson County Courthouse.

Did the University of Houston really ask that Philip remove his editorial?

All I know is that he was contacted by their attorney.

filup, when a candidate expresses a particular ideology, or an electorate indicates a preference for a particular candidate then you might say they "LEAN" towards .....

A "LIEN" (which you should know about) is an entirely different matter not in the slightest bit applicable to political discourse. Unless of course, the discussion is about a political consultant's financial history!

Rumor is that Fox 4 won't post any more videos by Klein.
